Welcome from Conference Chair

On behalf of the local organizing committee and SMARTlab, the Inclusive Design Research Center of Ireland at University College Dublin, I would like to extend a very warm welcome!  Dublin is a small but exciting European capital city with a rich cultural heritage strongly associated with great food and drink, beautiful landscapes, rich culture, art, literature and music, and the best of new creative technology innovation too.

I believe the conference we have prepared for you will be an exceptional scientific experience, and also a unique social and cultural visit that you’ll never forget. VSMM 2017 will provide ample networking opportunities and chances to exchange ideas with top scientists, researchers, professionals and practitioners from the broad range of disciplines informing the future of technology in Virtual Systems and Multimedia.   Whilst maintaining the rigors of scientific quality, we will also endeavor to promote creative connections, interdisciplinary collaborations and discussions between leaders from industry, academia, the arts, and community groups too. In addition, the social programme planned is guaranteed to meet the highest standards expected by conference delegates at a world-class international meeting.

So come and join us:  savor the cultural delights of Ireland and learn about VR, AR, Maker culture and 3D sensing, modeling and visualization as we take a peek through the looking glass and travel BACK TO THE FUTURE of VIRTUAL REALITY, at VSMM 2017.

I look forward to welcoming you to Ireland in 2017!
Professor Lizbeth Goodman
